Jim Ruddy - Ivoclar Vivadent Technical Product Specialist – Australia
Jim Ruddy has over 15 years experience in the field of dental ceramics both lecturing and teaching across Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Jim was a trainer for three years in Germany and as part of his on-going professional development he is certified every six months though the Ivoclar Vivadent ‘Train The Trainer’ (TTT) programme in Schaan, Liechtenstein.

The IPS e.max all-ceramic system comprises highly aesthetic and highstrength materials for both the Press and CAD/CAM technique.
The compatible and versatile IPS e.max Ceram glass-ceramic is the common denominator of the system.
It has a single, consistent layering scheme as well as predictable shade results which allow you to offer your dentists and patients highly personalised and natural looking restorations, even for complex cases independent of the framework material.
The potential and versatility of the entire IPS e.max all-ceramic system will be addressed in theory. The application of the various material specific techniques and the indication ranges will be discussed in detail.
